Recombinant Human AKR1D1(1-326aa) fused with His tag at N-terminal was expressed in E. coli.
Aldo-keto reductase family 1, member D1, also known as AKR1D1, is a member of the AKR superfamily. The AKR family of proteins are soluble NADPH oxidoreductases. They play important roles in the metabolism of drugs, carcinogens and reactive aldehydes. AKR1D1 is responsible for the catalysis of the 5-beta-reduction of bile acid intermediates and steroid hormones which carry a delta (4)-3-one structure. AKR1D1 is highly expressed in liver, colon and testis. Deficiency of this enzyme may contribute to hepatic dysfunction.
